WATERLOO, Ont. - Netflix's decision not to make its online movie and TV app available to BlackBerry PlayBook users isn't going over well in the Twitterverse.
In response to a Twitter inquiry on Thursday, Netflix responded that it doesn't have any current plans to support Research in Motion's (TSX:RIM) BlackBerry devices, including its PlayBook tablet.
It wasn't long before PlayBook users took to the social networking site to announce they would cancel their Netflix subscriptions.
Netflix stood by its decision in another tweet on Friday, but with a softer tack.
It says it wants to be on every screen that's relevant to its users, and that its plans may change in the future.
The Netflix app is currently available on various Apple and Android devices
